McDermott Library to Help Graduate Students Navigate Library Resources

As part of Graduate Professional Week, the Eugene McDermott Library is co-sponsoring workshops during the week of Oct. 2 to help UT Dallas graduate students and post-docs navigate research and citation tools for their papers and articles.

Throughout the week, Oct. 2-6, various schools, centers and the Library will offer seminars on a number of topics such as publishing journal articles, dealing with difficult people, achieving work-life balance, expanding opportunities with LinkedIn to nab your dream job, improving your resume and interview skills and helping international students be successful in the U.S. workplace.

Hosted by the Office of Graduate Studies, Graduate Professional Week is designed to give grad students an opportunity to network, socialize and participate in professional development events. The week will kick off with a social and taco bar with games, music, giveaways and prizes from 3 to 5 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 2 at the North Mall (next to the TI Plaza fountains).
